Description

Graphic Style Lab is a lively and playful approach to discovering different design styles. This guidebook is full of experimental design projects that cover the distinctions between a personal and universal style, historical and contemporary style, one-of-a kind styles. You'll also discover how lettering, type and typography often define style.

Improve your awareness and sensitivity to type styles, forms, and type choices through these visual experiments, and boost your confidence in your personal and professional work.

Graphic Style Lab can be used in the classroom or independently. Go directly to any of the step-by-step exercises and create extraordinarily creative graphic design. Don't be afraid to try something different! Graphic Style Lab offers 50 experiments that apply the fundamental principles of graphic design in a way that is creative, fun and interactive.
